Don’t miss out on this interesting massive chapel in the middle of the Indonesian forest. The most unique part of this place is its building shape which is shaped like a chicken, popularly known as chicken church now. This building is a pious tribute by Daniel Alamsjah who created possibly the most bird-like looking building in the world, complete with giant, squawking head, and ornate decorative tail feathers. Local artists have covered the inner walls with vibrant murals showing local mythology and history and there’s a small cafe nestled within the chicken’s rear that sells traditional, tasty treats. You can even climb up to the top of the bird’s head for amazing 360-degree views. A different experience for sure!

  • This place is cool, unique and challenging. To visit this place, visitors should have a good stamina to climb the road to reach the church. Inside the church there will be more steps to climb. Entrance fee is Rp 20.000 per person including snack in the church restaurant. Having meal at the restaurant inside the church is another beautiful experience. The ambiance and the view is so beautiful.

  • This place is unique. Even though they call it chicken church, we got to know it was designed to look like a pigeon to represent peace. The price is reasonable at 30000 rupiah, which includes a snack.

  • Known as "Gereja Ayam" (or Chicken Church) although the correct form is dove 🕊, is a house of prayers for all religion. There is a prayer room inside for Muslim or Hindu / Buddha as well. The highlight of this place is of course the church itself and the gorgeous view when you are standing on its crown. But other than that, it is not too special, IMHO. Especially comparing with the Majestic Borobudur temple that is near the place. Also NOT difabled friendly If you visit Borobudur you can extend your trip here. Oh, entrance fee is 20.000 which also gives you free snack at the cafeteria

  • Good place for hangout with family, good calm atmosphere, the scenery view is very good, the price is reasonable... Recommended for having a quick or long road trip with your friends or your family aswell...In my opinion this place is well deserved a five star. But be ready for the steep staircases to go to the place, I highly suggest you should rent the jeep to go up to where the site located in.

  • Super cute (like literally) chicken-shaped church perked on top of a hill. The surrounding view is gorgeous. You need to hike a small hill (+- 200m) to get there from the car park which can be quite strenuous for certain ppl. Otherwise you can hitch a ride on a mini SUV for about 60 cents (AU$).
